Van Gundy, Pistons should now focus on G Reggie Jackson
|(3/19/15) With the Pistons all but eliminated from the postseason, nothing is more important at this point in their final games for coach Stan Van Gundy than the progress of guard Reggie Jackson, writes the NBA.com.|
The Pistons sent guards Kyle Singler and D.J. Augustin to the Thunder on Feb. 19, clearing the path for Jackson to take over the point guard role. But Jackson's performance to this point has been inconsistent.
"The big thing with him is his aggressiveness and pushing the ball in transition and being aggressive on his pick and rolls," Van Gundy said. "I think when he does that, he's pretty effective. When he's just sort of playing with the ball and a little more tentative, then he runs himself into problems. He over dribbles at times, gets down in traffic. When he's on the attack north-south, I think he's very, very good."
Jackson may have to compete next season with Brandon Jennings, who's been out since late January with a ruptured left Achilles tendon.

|(2/20/15) The Thunder are expecting to have newly acquired Enes Kanter, D.J. Augustin, Kyle Singler and Steve Novak all available for Saturday's game against the Hornets, according to The Oklahoman.
All four were acquired by Oklahoma City just before Thursday's NBA trade deadline. Kanter is averaging 13.8 points and 7.8 rebounds in 49 games this season while Augustin is averaging 10.6 points and 4.9 assists in 54 games.
Presti: Thunder C Enes Kanter 'has his best basketball' ahead
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Thunder general manager Sam Presti addressed the three-team trade executed Thursday that brought center Enes Kanter, point guard D.J. Augustin and small forwards Kyle Singler and Steve Novak to Oklahoma City.
"We're extremely pleased to welcome Enes, Steve, D.J. and Kyle. We feel we have added talent, toughness and commitment to our roster and we are excited about the depth and versatility these additions provide," Presti said. "It is a rare opportunity to acquire a player like Enes who will be an added dimension to our frontcourt and has his best basketball in front of him. Kyle, D.J. and Steve are professionals of the highest order and players that we believe will be committed now and in the future."
Presti also thanked departing players Kendrick Perkins, Reggie Jackson and Grant Jarrett in the statement. In addition, the Thunder traded a protected 2017 first-round pick to Utah and acquired an unprotected 2019 second-round pick from Detroit.
Pistons PG D.J. Augustin scores team-high 22 vs. Spurs
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/11/15) Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin scored a team-high 22 points on 8 of 18 shooting, including 2 of 6 shooting from behind the arc, in his team's 104-87 loss to the Spurs Wednesday.
Augustin and fellow guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope combined to score 42 points in the loss, making up nearly half of the team's point total. The point guard also kicked in six assists and three rebounds in 34 minutes while turning the ball over five times. Augustin has scored in double digits in each of his last six games heading into the All-Star break.
|The Bulls have rightly taken flak for their inability to score over the last few years, but they have become a destination for point guards who have fallen on hard times nonetheless. D.J. Augustin looked like he might not be long for the NBA when the Raptors cut him last season, but he landed in a perfect spot in Chicago, as he revived his career over the final 61 games of the season. He averaged 14.9 points and 5.0 assists in 30.4 minutes per game for the Bulls, performing well enough to get a multi-year deal from the Pistons. He will likely come off the bench in Detroit, but this could be another solid landing spot for him, with coach Stan Van Gundy at the helm and a plethora of talented big men to run pick and rolls with. Augustin plays a deep position, but should still be worth a late-round flier in most Fantasy formats.
